Sunchoke Dip

Notes: This hummus-like dip was created by Loretta Barrett Oden of Corn Dance Cafe in Santa Fe and Josiah Citrin of JiRaffe in Los Angeles for the Cuisines of the Sun program at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel in Hawaii. Jerusalem artichoke (also known as sunchoke) is the root of a native American variety of sunflower. You'll need about 8 cups of chips.

Yield: Makes about 2 cups dip; 8 servings
